My REG Experience

Diabolic Diagnostic

11    

I peeked into the mailbox yesterday and sure enough some spam from some company called “NASBA” was in there.

I opened it up and before I looked (true story) I prayed “God, please make this say that I passed” (or something to that effect). Instead, my eyes zeroed in on some heartless line about “no credit” for the FARE section.

Score: 74 Result: FAIL

I then looked at the diagnostic section and what do you know, the ONE section I decided to watch for the Yaeger Cram as I've previously stated is “Entity Taxation” and I doubled my freaking score from a 40 to an 80.

It was the only thing I studied (spent almost all of my time on BEC) for REG because – heh – afterall, I scored a 74 before and had this thing in the bag.

Wouldn't you know – Ol' Reliable – Individual Taxation, which I scored a 93 on before dropped 30 points.

At that point I said “Get behind thee Satan” and threw it away.

  • I just figure we’re somehow building character out of all of this frustration. I know the feeling. Still haven’t passed a section and received my score of 74 on BEC last week. heh. Good luck with your next try!

  • The sweet will never be as sweet without the sour!

    It’s going to be very very sweet for you my friend, when you obtain your CPA.

  • I failed Reg by 2 points the first time i took it. The second time i started from complete scratch. I knew where i had slipped up (partnership taxation in particular) but i still studied as if i had no idea what my weak areas were. I re-took the exam 6 months after the first exam (after busy season) and put in a little over a month and a half. Got a 79. Score would have been higher but i think i got minimal points on two pretty foreign simulation topics but i really nailed the MC. I also failed BEC by 3 points. I started from scratch with that test as well. I felt very confident leaving the exam center and hope for some good news this week or next that i am done with the cpa exam.

    I’m glad you threw out your score report; i don’t think it helps at all. Just put in the time and pass REG. Don’t take anything lightly or anything for granted and you will see the results in July…

  • Was this result for FARE or REG?(the taxation reference made me think it was REG)

    Either way, that sucks.

    Been there, felt the frustration.
    Back to the drawing board….
